Back to Table Rock with Deano.....

Recommended Posts

Dean picked me up at the house at a few minutes before 8am. Backed in to the water at Campbell Point at 9:20... Air temp 34*, water temp. 44.5*. Fished pretty hard for about an hour without a biter. After throwing all my favorite winter baits trying to keep from throwing the Ned without even a smell..... I finally picked up the Ned rig and starting throwing it. Another hour without a bite when finally my buddy Dean broke the ice with nice fat largemouth on a peanut butter and jelly TRD. It was another hour and a half latter before I landed my first fish, then my second, both dinks on a "perfect perch" TRD. After fishing several more minutes I finally picked up my first keeper.... another chunky largemouth. We found them scattered, just one here and there. Then, the last hour and a half before dark as the shadows got long the better fish came out to play and we had a ball....

Pretty smallmouth.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

When the bite was tough I swam a grub for about 40 years. I could always get bit on a Kalin or a Gary Yamamoto Hula Grub. Then Chompers came along with their salt and garlic and they became my go to. If the water was stable and slowing warming in the spring you could stay right on 'em trip after trip. Then someone introduced me to the dang Ned Rig and its got me ruined. I try to stay away from it but I can't do it.... It just keeps on drawing bites.... It unbelievable.....
